In Ghana, land-records are paper based which are easily lost, destroyed or corrupted. The lack of trust in these analog records leads to long court cases and often violent disputes. Without trusted land records financial institutions are unable to provide loans, individuals cannot prove ownership, and land investment stays stagnant. BenBen is an interactive map platform and concensus database that aims to tackle the inefficiencies of land administration to promote investment, reduce poverty and encourage transparent natural-resource management.
